representatives, pretty soon the government will be formed. people will have positions so i think what you are going to see is more and more u.s. assistance to directly get rid of the assad regime and i think the additional line is that we're going to go really hard back at moscow. because moscow's assistance has been pivotal in keeping assad in office. >> how do we go hard back at moscow? >> first of all, go at them diplomatically. their interests where the united states and russia have certain parallel interests and work those interests. the russians believe in linkage. everything with the russians is about linkage. what does putin get from continuing to support assad? one thing he might get a higher oil prices because there's a risk premium on oil. this is important for russia. >> absolutely. >> you know, the united states is going to be a big factor in russia's future because we increase the oil production and the predictions are predicting more than russia or saudi arabia in five or six years. that's a mortal threat to russia if it affects the price of oil. >> all right. and seth, wha

the libertarians who just want government out of their face and out of their lives and you kell another engine. try to do what ryan priebus is doing right now and you will see the problem, tristeering the car with your engine dead. tristeering the political party once you kill the motor. you set out to kill the big motors of the republican party itself. for progressives the amazing thing here is people on the left, center left, and a big share of the center right now are together. they know why the republican established wants to free itself from the issues, they are relieved, thrilled really, it not them trying to hold together a motley crew. senior t strategist for rick santorum's political campaign. let me go -- i want to start with the basic question of a political party. this week's republican autopsy report it's being called urged the party to be more inclusive of gay people, women, minorities, did not go unnoticed by the social conservative wing of the party. the report makes little of their concerns. the report never mentions the word christian or church. there's know -- no talk of abortion
our first look at just how big after case the government was building against the late internet activist aaron schwartz, a student at m.i.t. accused of habbing into the school's computer network. the university has now agreed to release whatever documents were handed over to federal prosecutors. schwartz's family hopes doing so will prove the case against their son was bogus. we never got to hear schwartz's full side of the story. he hanged himself in federal prison before the trial. >>> dennis rodman is that friend who can't keep a secret. the north korean dictator kim jong un just learned that the hard way. rodman told the british tabloid "the sun" that kim jong un's wife kept talking about her beautiful daughter during his trip there when he and kim became bffs. rumors of kim's secret daughter have swirled for a couple years but north korea never confirmed she existed. >>> now our sports lead. march madness is as much about big money as hoops. politicians here in d.c. are seeing dollar signs whether they filled out a bracket or not. the regionals of the ncaas will happen in w
with netanyahu and the new government and that, that new start, i don't like the word reset. but that new relationship begins this week. >> but at the same time, tommy, when the president was asked by israeli television about his relationship with netanyahu, he described it as business-like. he didn't say my good friend, he didn't try to sugar-coat it, frankly. i think anyone who has seen the pictures of them together over the years knows it's not a cozy relationship. >> well you know -- >> it's a strategic alliance. >> right. aaron can tell you, bebe netanyahu is not a warm and fuzzy guy, i don't think he needs to be. they've got be a lot done together. they've spent more time one-on-one the president has with almost any other leader. but if you look at the record of us supporting israeli security, we're talking $3 billion a year to help them maintain a military presence in the region, hundreds more to fund an iron dome defense system to protect israelis from rockets coming out of hamas or southern lebanon. so they're in lock step on a number of key issues there have been these dust ups
the republicans miss is that even rich people need government. even if it is just to build the runways for their golf stream jets. it is not a case of charity. we're all in this together. this is the essential message that barack obama ran on with robert and ran on again in his re-election campaign. the republicans don't get that basic concept. even when they're talking about government programs, they're talking about them as charity. they're not charity. >> steve schmidt we're out of time on this segment, need a quick word before you go. your reaction to cpac? >> i said a couple weeks ago, it has become the star wars bar scene of the conservative movement. it was certainly that and more as we look at this. the good news for republicans is that group's power is mostly illusory. they're a group that will make a lot of noise, it will be incumbent on our serious candidates to call out the excesses of some of the people at cpac to be taken seriously by the middle of the country. >> robert gibbs, steve schmidt, howard fineman, thank you for joining me tonight. >>> coming up, a new poll show

the people who lied to you before. the american government lied to its own people. honestly, i don't know of a worse lie one could tell other than a lie to take a country to war. to make up things to take people to war. that's got to be the most obscene, immoral thing to do. so this government hasn't earned the right to be trusted. if it says assad has chemical weapons or ahmadinejad has a nuclear weapon -- >> but it's not this government, is it, that went to war with saddam. >> which government? you're talking about obama versus bush? >> yes. >> i'm talking about the real government. wall street, the banks, people who made $2.2 trillion we spent on the iraq war. who made the money? soldiers in the field? i don't think so. this is always about the people who have the purse strings and the politicians bought by them. if they come on now and tell me anything about ahmadinejad is building a bomb. really? i'll believe it when he walks in the room with it and shows me. that's how much i don't trust anything said by the military industrial complex of this great country. >> when you see what hap
about destabilizing jordan and giving us maybe an advantage in iran if the syrian government changes and the fallout with israel. i think the long-term issue is do we have values that want to prevent this kind of thing? after all, europe finally did it and we were with them in bosnia. we didn't do it in rwanda. we did act in libya which has less strategic interest for us than this. i think there is no choice any more. i was very cautious for a long time and applauded obama for being cautious, but now we have reached the tipping point. >> we will come back to this. we have a lot of other news to cover as well. >>> first leg of mark sanford's shot at political redemption is complete. he easily clenched a spot in the runoff for the charleston area congressional seat. what is still unclear who his opponent will be. following thin voter turnout, bostic and grooms separated less than 1%. now sanford will try to cobble together support for those who voted for other candidates in what was a packed field flanked by his sons, sanford invoked the importance of putting the country's financial ho
knows what is happening in jordan and you have a new israel government elected not to make peace or more but simply deal with the orthodox in the israel society. this is the most unripe situation for diplomacy any american president has walked into. >> mike, this american president, i think, has bent over backwards to be an honest broker between the israelis and palestinians and he did so in a way that actually angered the israelis. so hamas launches rockets into israel while the president is there and what do they do? they actually push away a guy that, again, is trying to be an honest broker. >> yeah, he has tried to be an honest broker and paid a price to it to some extent in domestic politics. what do you think of the theory, it's more than a theory, i would guess, that this trip is based largely less on policy than the president's personality, convincing the israelis and the israeli government that i am your friend. the united states is your friend. we are not going to falter or hesitate or anything when it comes to the defense of israel. >> i don't think he is aiming so much to the
in the state, colorado officials have responded by increasing security for other top government officials in the state. they have also increased security at the governor's mansion. this is happening in colorado at an already heightened time. the colorado legislature has been debating and passing gun reform legislation and that debate has been unusually contentious. they have pledged on the floor of the senate that they will disobey them. they will disobey the state's new laws. democratic lawmakers have received threats for their support of gun reform. criminal charges have been brought against people for making death threats against pro gun legislators. the sheriff in el paso county, which is where tom clements was killed, his office is the one in charge of the investigation, the sheriff is one of the sheriffs who has been highly critical of the gun legislation. so all of that pre-existing tension and those threats and that political battle on a day when a member of his cabinet was murdered by means of a gun, the governor in colorado today did not reschedule. he went ahead and signed thos

between the iraqi government and the people who attacked us on 9/11. and yet, there's the republican presidential nominee, the last one to run, saying actually the iraq war was a war of liberation. at the republican convention this year, when they picked that nominee, the speech was given by the national security adviser during the iraq war, the one who said the smoking gun would be a mushroom cloud, who describe that war in her speech that night at the convention as a hard hard decision to keep us from being attacked again. ten years later it is hard to come to terms with the fact we went to war based on something the president told us that was not true. there is nothing that can bring back the more than 4400 american troops who died in that war, the more than 30,000 american troops wounded will not be made whole. we cannot bring them back. we cannot heal their injuries retroactively. and george bush and dick cheney and condoleezza rice are still around. in terms of how we get right with this as a country, the accountability can't just be personal about the decision makers. it has t
